    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The student will be examined on the meaning of a group of laboratory tests, pertinent to a certain pathology. The knowledge and definition of the basic elements of the subject must be known for the exam to be considered sufficient. The student may be asked to interpret clinical analysis values ​​critically and integrated into the clinical picture. Conversely, the student may be asked which laboratory tests may be appropriate in the differential diagnosis of certain pathologies
